The Internet of Things (IoT) represents another evolution in data collection and introduces exciting opportunities for transformative business growth.
IoT is not a foreign concept when it comes to the 4th Industrial Revolution and can be regarded as a catalyst for digital transformation. In contrast with the past, organisations’ digital transformation has shown significant signs of advancement in all fields by making use of digital technology such as IoT.
The revolution has had positive effects on business operations by optimizing business processes, improving operation efficiency and creating customer-obsessed experiences that grow revenue and re-invigorate your business.
As we move towards the future of digital transformation, companies are planning to make more sophisticated use of emerging technologies such as IoT to drive businesses.
The ecosystem of IoT and its supporting technologies are major forces that contribute to driving digital transformation, enabling growth through the strengthening of current business models and the creation of new offerings, services and products. In order to deliver the benefits of digital transformation, it must be fully integrated with operational systems, and in most businesses.
According to Cambashi Ltd Analyst, Alan Griffiths, “IoT projects can offer whole new business models such as ‘product-as-a-service’ or ‘power by the hour,’ so the right people need to be involved to assess the opportunity and develop ideas to fit their organization’s priorities, timescales, budgets and culture,”
To continue the conversation, IT News Africa will host the highly anticipated “Digital Transformation Congress”, where ‘Accelerating Digital Transformation with IoT’ is one of the many intriguing topics that delegates and speakers will tackle on the day of the event.
